Crumbs – A Personal Declaration of Self-Endowed Rights

Thomas Jefferson 

“The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time; the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them.”  Thomas Jefferson: Rights of British America, 1774.

              Ronald Reagan          “Our natural, inalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation from government, and freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment.” Ronald Reagen

my way or highway 

“Give up your need to always be right. There are so many of us who can’t stand the idea of being wrong – wanting to always be right – even at the risk of ending great relationships or causing a great deal of stress and pain, for us and for others. It’s just not worth it. Whenever you feel the ‘urgent’ need to jump into a fight over who is right and who is wrong, ask yourself this question: ‘Would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind?’ Wayne Dyer. What difference will that make? Is your ego really that big?  Dana Saviuc

“But both these desires — to understand and to be understood — are together. Unless you understand, you cannot drop the desire to be understood. . . .”  From the book “Beyond Psychology”

                               judges gavel        “The opposite of retaliation is to entrust ourselves to God, who judges justly.” Jerry Bridges, The Practice of Godliness                             

“Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will bless you for it.” I Peter 3:9 NL

  1. Good stuff, Liz. One of my personal declarations: I want everyone to like me, and God is calling me to die to that. I’m trying to cooperate!
